Hi everyone! I’m so glad you found my page! My name is Anna (Smith) Helman and I am a farm wife, mom, step mom, owner of Windmill Lane Farm craft retreat, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, and lover of all things crafty, foody, and outdoorsy. If you can’t already tell, life is a little crazy, but I make time for Stampin’ Up because of the fulfillment I receive from this business.
I became a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator in March 2014. I had previously been a consultant with a competing company, and I was so disappointed with their products, I began researching other companies. When I signed up with Stampin’ Up, I had NO IDEA I was making a decision that would be life changing in a wonderful way! As a result of my success during my first year, I was a recipient of the Rising Star award, an honor given to only six demonstrators at the 2015 Stampin’ Up! Convention. Since that time, I have achieved incentive trips to Newport Beach, California, and Thailand! I love Stampin’ Up! as a company, I love being able to provide for my family through my love of crafting, and I love meeting amazing people and building lifelong relationships in the process!
You’ll notice if you follow my blog that I try to post a variety of projects. I share a lot of cards, some scrapbooking ideas, and a few 3D projects as well. Occasionally I mix it up and share a recipe or some other tidbit of fun that I think might help someone out there! Regarding my stamping projects, I really enjoy trying out new techniques and using products in new ways. I try to challenge my creativity, and by doing this I hope to inspire your creativity as well!
I offer in person classes occasionally near Farmersville (close to Dayton), Ohio, and I’ll be starting soon at my new home in Ligonier in northern Indiana! Please contact me if you would like to join in. I also offer ways for you to get involved from a distance! Classes in the Mail are a great opportunity to get projects in the mail and exclusive video tutorials. If you’ve never tried stamping before and would like to learn, check out my Learn to Stamp videos. If you enjoy visiting my blog, please shop using my online Stampin’ Up! store. I’m really working to grow my business, and I am very appreciative of my customers and each Stampin’ Up! demonstrator on my team! I welcome your business and I’m here to help with anything I can!
If you have questions, ideas or suggestions, please let me know!
